Five Qualities of a Safe Construction Job Site

Construction companies have a requirement to ensure work safety. Over 20% of worker fatalities each year happen on job sites across the USA, meaning that one in five deaths in service is a construction worker.

Improving worker safety begins with creating a culture of safety and the development of specific desirable qualities.

WCCTV has been supplying surveillance cameras to support safety and security on construction job sites for over 20 years. Below, we highlight the five qualities that, in our experience, can enhance the overall safety of a construction site.


1. Safety Culture Starts from the Top

As a construction company owner or manager, you have a responsibility and commitment to your workers. 

Ensure all health and safety practices are up to date with risk assessments in place to mitigate any hazards and implement these measures into your workers’ wellbeing.

At WCCTV, we know that some construction project managers may not have vast experience performing a security risk assessment, so we have created our free-to-download template to get you started.

2. Right Workers’ Attitude

Every worker on your construction job site must have a clear picture of the work required from them, including their tasks and the high risk that is associated with them.

This ensures that they are following the correct safety procedure and what they are required to do with encountering a hazard and how to notify you of the presence of the threat.

3. Regular Safety Inspections

You must organize frequent safety inspections and checks, and they must be thorough enough to root out the most common hazards.

WCCTV's recently published infographic, shown below, highlights the most common accidents that occur in construction and offers ways to mitigate them.

4. Safety Training for Workers

Everyone should know the right methods to work safety when on your construction jobsite.

Ensuring a safe working environment begins with controlling and mitigating health and safety risks, promoting a culture of safety, and communicating your site rules clearly and consistently.

WCCTV's guide to controlling site safety focuses on the practical ways you can improve site safety, reduce injuries, and improve communication across your worksites.

5. Periodic Evaluation

Supplement your safety and health measures in your construction job site by evaluating them periodically to determine whether workers are following them and whether anything needs to change – whether it’s new hazards that have been introduced or hazards that are no longer present.

Remember to review your risk assessment every time your sites change or develop. Changes to your site can result in new vulnerabilities that your original plan did not consider.
